Interdisciplinary Team


Indian Institute of Bio-Social Research and Development (IBRAD) was established in response to growing need for:

Understanding the concepts of biological, social and other natural sciences, through systemic approach and unifying these concepts for developing a coherent body of knowledge

Thus applying the body of knowledge and skills through integrated training and educational programmes to address the problem of severe degradation of natural resources and social environment, upon which our survival depend.

The realisation that no single discipline of knowledge can address the problem of sustainable human development, needed understanding the problem through systemic and holistic approaches rather than trying to address them in an isolated manner. This needs a cohesive team of interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary professionals working in a coherent manner valuing each others strength and appreciating the weakness of their own.
